Living Room Decor Inspired by 80’s Jam

I am officially obsessed with Polyvore!  It is an awesome way to get your creative juices flowing when you need a little inspiration for fashion and home decor.  I have friends who feel like they don’t possess that creative edge, but all it takes is a little practice and playing around with different avenues that allow you to think outside the box.  Polyvore is a great way to let your mind play! 

 

I thought it would be fun to create a functional, appealing, and affordable living area inspired by one of my favorite 80’s songs: “I’ll Melt with You” by Modern English.

Living Room Decor Inspired by Modern English

 

I love the contrast that black and white provides.  It is so chic and easy to build around a black and white color scheme.  Throw in a few pops of color and you’re good to go.  I think a living room should feel cozy, inviting, and have fun decor.  The art print, skull candle, vase, and pillows are the funky pieces of the living room while the curtains, throw, clock, lamp and furniture, are the functional pieces that piece it all together.

 

What would your living room look like and which song would be the inspiration?!

DIY Candle Decor

I love candles and I love burning candles for no other reason than they are pretty.  So, here’s a fun way to display candlestick in something a little different.  This can be used on a mantle or maybe at a wedding for the “in memory” table.  Be sure to keep an eye on the candle if it is above the glass and when the flame is close to the ribbon.

You will need:

  • Glass Vase/Cylinder
  • 5 or more candlesticks
  • Extra candle
  • Hair tie or Rubber Band
  • Ribbon
  • Matches/Lighter

First, gather a bunch of candle sticks.  Use different colors and different complimentary scents!  Gather them with a hair tie or rubber band.  This will hold them all in place.  Tie a ribbon around the candles to cover the hair tie.DSC_0333

Next, take a candle, it will be easiest if you have one separate from the bundle.  Light the candle and turn it sideways over the glass cylinder or vase.  Let the wax drip onto the bottom of the cylinder.  Once you have a little puddle, stick you bundle on top of the liquid wax.  Hold it firmly until it dries.  This will hold the bundle in the center of the cylinder.

After it is dry and firmly in place, light the candles and enjoy!
